Amala Paul was harassed by a Chennai-based businessman when she was busy rehearsing for a song at a studio. “I went to a dance practice for that event. While I was practicing, he came inside. He spoke as though he was part of the event. He spoke to me like he was someone known at the event. He spoke to me personally when I was alone inside. That’s why I have complained. He has spoken like he was conducting a sexual trade, for a favor,”

Explaining why she filed a complaint, Amala Paul said, “I should not let it go. Because there are many independent working women like me. If there is no safety, then I don’t know why we’re living.”

The cops arrested the accused, Alagesan, under sections 354A (Sexual harassment), 509 (Uttering any word or making any gesture intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code and section 4 of the Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act, The Hindu reported.
